Sign up now or lose access for good: GCash reminds users of SIM registration deadline

E-wallet app GCash said users with unregistered SIMs could lose access to their accounts if they fail to register by the April 26 deadline.

The Ayala-owned e-wallet said access to GCash accounts will be restricted if a person is using an unregistered SIM by the registration deadline. That’s because users won’t be able to receive one-time PINs once their unregistered cell phone numbers are deactivated.

The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) has stood firm on meeting the deadline for registration despite pleas from Globe and Smart Communications for an extension.
